  • Eva blocking Kriss' super-kick to protect Amalia — a kick so strong that after she managed to deflect it upwards, it was sent all the way to Moon Island.
  • The final part of episode 12, depicting the last seconds of a Gobbowl match, is made of pure awesome (with a pint of Dragon Ball thrown in). The few minutes that follow are excellent too.
  • Ruel and Sadlygrove's Big Damn Heroes moment in episode 14, followed by Amalia & Moon's.

  • The entire episode 17 is an Awesome battle between Nox and Grougaloragran. Those guys are pure badass.
  • The last three episodes are a feature-length CMOA all by themselves.
  • Yugo almost teleporting into space.
  • Yugo fighting Nox. He has him beaten, until an untimely roar from Ogrest distracts Yugo long enough for Nox to deliver a fatal sucker punch.
    • The moment just before that; Nox once again freezes time to counter Yugo's Eliacube enhanced speed, draws his sword and goes for the killing blow, only for Yugo to get even faster whilst they're both still inside the time stop! Yugo proceeds to hand Nox his ass before a single raindrop hits the ground, all with some awesome music to boot.
  • This usually happens when Sadlygrove gets serious.
  • The gang gets a collective one in "Le Silence des Anneaux" with a big fight scene that looks like it came straight from the animes, complete with cheesy Shounen-esque music.
  • The fact that Sadlygrove's old master came back from the dead, simply because Sadlygrove wasn't sure of his way in life, and that he was bored, is pretty awesome in itself, then there is the fact that he truly did come back, as even Rubilax is terrified to see him.
    • Hell, the entire "Rubilax" Episode is a Crowning Moment of Awesome for Sadlygrove! The guy shows just how much of a Determinator he is, simply refusing to ever even think of giving up and why Iops are not to be underestimated!

  • Ruel's grandmother is a walking Moment of Awesome. She is at least 200 years old ( Ruel is either two hundred or one thousand, and she was ancient when he was young) with an afro bigger than she is and a greed for gold that makes Ruel look charitable. When robbers threaten her cable car, she combines with her familiar (an insane, badass dog-like beast) and beats the robbers with her bare hands - or, to be more accurate, claws. When they try to destroy the cable car, she brings out a cannon and starts shooting rocks in a blood-thirsty way that puts Sadlygrove and General Moffete to shame.
  • Eva's solo adventure in the first few episodes of season 2. Highlights include the rooftop chase/battle with Remington and using a really powerful demon-possessed sword.
  • Adamai vs Qilby fight. Adamai lost in the end, but it still showed just how dangerous an adult Eliatrope can be.
  • Season 2, episode 24: The Shushu army has emerged in the mortal world and are setting forth to wreak havoc, with their first targets being the fleet belonging to New Sufokia. Said fleet's crew are understandably freaking out at the sudden arrival of a demonic army out of nowhere...except for their leader, Prince Adale, who's calmly sipping tea even while his bridge crew are panicking. When they beg him for orders, he simply rises and addresses the crew:
    Prince Adale: So the question to be asked now is: who should we shoot at?
    The Crew: (rising and saluting, despite their panic) Awaiting orders, Sir!
    Prince Adale: (raises his hand) All right...bombard the island! Don't let anyone remain!
    • Cue a massive Beam Spam from the New Sufokia fleet.
  • The various tidbits of Rushu vs Goultard near the end of the series. It started with Goultard curbstomping Rushu, prompting him to assume his true form. Goultard simply continued punching him around like a ragdoll, prompting Rushu to re-absorb his Sushus, gaining a massive power boost, which simply evened the playing field. Ultimately, Goultard made a Heroic Sacrifice of pulling Rushu back to his dimension, although he's shown to be alive and continuing the fight in Rushu's home dimension afterwards, still evenly matched.
    • Evenly matched, pffft. The next time we see Goultard in the Special Episodes, he's using Rushu as a footstool.
  • The 2vs2 battle of Yugo/Phearis vs Quilby/Anathar-possessed Adamai. Two adult sized dragons (one of them under the control of a demon with Power Copying abilities) and two Eliatropes duking it out with the full range of their powers for first time, including Yugo being brought up to his adult level of abilities. Most impressive is Yugo using his Wakfu to summon a sword and shield combo and showing a decent amount of skill with both despite never using any sort of weapons before. A shame he is ultimately totally outmatched against the far older, more experienced Quilby, who is also powered by the Eliacube, of which he has full control of. The whole fight is a masterclass of just how powerful Eliatropes can be.
  • And in the final episode of season 2 we get a moment of awesome for the entire Eliatrope race. After being given a "Reason You Suck" Speech by Yugo, Quilby totally loses it and a fight breaks out between him and nearly every single Eliatrope in existence, as Quilby races across a pocket dimension full of miniature planetoids to recover his sisters Dofus, with the Eliatropes in hot pursuit, unleashing the mother of all Beam Spam on him. He responds by hurling planets at his people. The entire thing is epic beyond belief, the animation is gorgeous and the music sells the entire moment.It really needs to be seen to be believed.
  • The Kickstarter campaign to create an official English dub concluded on 2/19/14, finishing with a total of $483,524, over six times its original starting goal of $80,000 and making it one of the top five most-funded projects in the entire Kickstarter Animation category.
  • The events of the three specials. All of them.
    • Notable mention goes to Sadlygrove lifting an entire country, becoming a god, then fighting against six dragons simultaneously as well as Ogrest leading up to them fighting in space.
    • Mention during the battle with Ogrest also goes to Yugo, who harnesses the power of several Dofus to match Sadlygrove's level of power to take part in the battle alongside him. His ensuing power is literally godlike, which ends up altering reality in such a way that a new class of adventurers with similar powers—the Eliotropes—has become available in an alternate reality (the Wakfu MMO). Seriously, that actually happens.
    • Ogrest deserves some mention for fighting against two Physical Gods, the Iop God (war god) and Yugo wielding the Six Eliatrope Dofus (making him equal to Ogrest in terms of power). Not only does Ogrest manage to hold his own, he actually defeats both of them without suffering so much as a single visible injury..
    • In the animation proper, Yugo's enhanced power allows him to send Mount Zinit to space, allowing himself and Sadlygrove to fight Ogrest and his dragon minions without endangering the World of Twelve... or so he thinks, as in a case of Reality Ensues, pieces of the mountain break off under the pressure of the battle as meteors that fall onto the Sadida Kingdom - if the mountain itself manages to impact, it would be the end of the world. Even after this near screw-up, Yugo still saves the day by using the Dofus one last time to create a massive portal for the mountain to fall into, headed for the Sushu realm instead. Damage is still done to the World of Twelve from the mountain's debris, but it's a vast improvement over Ogrest's mass-flooding or the mountain impacting.
  • Season 3, Episode 1: The Percedal family is soon sneak-attacked by two of the Siblings, Poo and Toxine: we have the one-armed Sadlygrove (who's renounced the powers of Iop), the heavily pregnant Evangelyne and their two children against a massive Pandawa demigod who excels at martial arts and a psychopatic Sram demigoddess who can make herself invisible and has poisoned weapons, and both have the advantage of surprise and an item to paralyze the two children. In a matter of minutes, the Percedal has escaped the house and caused an explosion to damage the two Siblings, and once they're outside do they plan to flee? Nope, they plan to finish them there and now. If it weren't for Adamai's arrival, Poo and Toxine would have been defeated there.
  • Season 3 Episode 2: Poo, the giant, Pandawa demigod is hunting down Elely and Sadlygrove, but the latter is too injured to fight and so Elely tries to stop him. A very young Iop girl vs a gigantic bear-man demigod: And when Grovley arrives, Elely is beating the crap out of Poo in a sweet Curb-Stomp Battle.
    • Season 3 Episode 3. After almost a decade of seeing Yugo as a cute little child, finally catching a glimpse of the fully grown King of the Eliatropes is pretty awesome. He's not only shown that he will eventually grow to be one of the taller, if not tallest members of the group, he'll also pack on some considerable muscles. Basically looking like Luke Skywalker on the Super Soldier Serum. And Amalia couldn't look happier.
    • Lady Echo pulling a Big Damn Heroes and not only saving Eva and Flopin, but also punishing the vicious Toxine by grabbing her head with her talons and repeatedly smacking her against the floor complete with Punctuated Pounding before tossing her into a portal like a ragdoll.
  • Season 3 Episode 5 is a writers and animators looking at the Ogrest fight and thinking they could outdo it. And they succeed.
    • Special note goes to around 10:33 - Dally gets a cool Badass Boast, with the image of Iop behind him.
      Dally: "You don't seem to know who I am. Let me refresh your memory."
      Rubilax:"You rule, Buddy."
      Dally: "I am Tristepin of Percedal (Percedal of Sadlygrove).
      Dark Vlad: Ah? Well, pleased to meet you."
      Dally: "The first Iop god." Cue Headbutt.
  • Season 3 Episode 7, Black Bump has already took Ruel's boxers and has Yugo and Amalia on the ropes when he injures the latter. Cue to a pissed off Yugo powering up and handing the Feca Demigod his own armored ass on a plate, finally getting the best on one of Oropo's followers. For ulterious sweet awesomeness, the final showdown has Yugo using Wakfu Dual Tonfa as his opponent to repeatedly hammer his barrier until it breaks, adding a whole Beat Them at Their Own Game flavour.
  • Season 3 Episode 9, Flopin shows that he truly is the son of Dally and not only fights the adult, highly dangerous Toxine on hiw own, turning her own living traps against her, he also gives her the coup de grace by Use Your Head to push her in her own, demonic Well of Shadows.
  • Season 3 Episode 10, Just to give an idea of how powerful is Evangelyne's third son, he begins to tear apart Oropo's tower and dimension when he's nearly killed by Toxine and feels threatened, and all of this while he's still in uterus. Oropo had to use the Eliacube and all six of the Eliatrope Dofus to keep the tower from being destroyed, and even then he had to restructured the whole thing. The Percedal family really is something.
  • Season 3 episode 11, Tristepin notices that Oropo (so far protected by a Force Field) is occasionally distracted by Yugo inside him, fighting back his illusions. Taking aim, he manages to get the timing right and deliver a powerful punch in Oropo's face, finally showing that he's not so invincible as he looks like.
  • Season 3 episode 12, After Oropo has used his powers to absorb Yugo into himself to claim his place in reality, he tries to use illusions of Nox and Qilby to beat Yugo's will into submission to fully overtake him. Yugo beats his 2 most powerful enemies into non-existence at the same time. Oropo then tries to change tactics, by weighing Yugo down emotionally, first by trying to use the guilt he felt over fighting Adamai in the specials, then followed up by the guilt he feels over not being able to release his people and give them a home and his fear over the burden of his kingship. Finally he tries to use Yugo's despair over not being able to be with Amalia due to his longevity and the fear he feels over having to live an unbearably long life before having to be reborn and start the cycle again. Yugo refuses to believe Oropo's manipulations, stating that if he gives into that mindset, he could become just as much of a cruel nihilist as Oropo is. And that's something he will NEVER allow himself to become. THIS moment in the series more than any other, marks Yugo's complete transition from boy into man and King, even if he doesn't look like a grown up yet.
